I love stumbling across a beauty line that is not only the creation of an entrepreneurial mind, but also one that is all about using healthy, all-natural, you-could-eat-it ingredients. Pond Parker is the mini-beauty-mogul behind Pure Lips. "In my personal belief, plant-based ingredients offer me a richer, purer, safer & more fulfilling life; but that is just me," she says (and we gotta agree!).
Notable among her line is Coal Buff ($10), a charcoal green tea facial cleanser/mask, a serum ($15) that helps control oil and acne breakouts, and a collection of super moisturizing lip balms made from coconut oil, shea butter and mango butter -- in FIFTY flavors.
